The bookies have this one at 10.5 which is possibly a fair number. Our predictive models have the score much closer and in single digits. The historical trends also indicate a smaller margin and with the Game Total Under being very prevalent for both teams this year the value increases. 

  • 4 of the last 6 games for both teams have resulted in Winning Margins of 12 points or less
  • All 9 Wests Tigers games this year have gone Under the Game Total
  • The Dolphins are 4th in the league in Linebreaks, averaging 5.7 per game
  • The Tigers allow 45% of opposition tries down their right side


Head to Head

The Tigers are struggling this year. Part of the problem has been injuries and players coming in and out of the team, the other part is their ability and application. In their 7 games since Round 3 where they scored 32 points the Tigers have not managed to score over 17 points, averaging only 12.7 pts per game. 

They have though been able to keep games close with 5 of their 9 games played all finishing with Margins of 12 points or less. 

Every Tigers game so far this year has gone Under the Game Total.
